Fake Diya app can steal user data, head of electronic services development at the Ministry of Digital Transformation Mstyslav Banik stated on air of Ukraine 24 TV channel.

According to him, the fake Diya application has nothing to do with the application of the Ministry of Finance. Mstyslav Banik noted that it differs from Diya in every way, and the main feature is that there is no access to registers, no access to the person's documents; there is nothing like that. This is a program that simulates the display of a photo on a design that looks like the one in Diya.

"At the same time, the analysis of this application showed that there is access to banking information, contacts, messages, files on the phone - to everything that is on the phone. The fake app can not only say that you are 18 years old, but also steal your data for money," he added.

Mstyslav Banik added that the issue of catching criminals who created the fake Diya is the responsibility not of the Ministry of Justice, but of the cyberpolice, and the cyberpolice analyzed the application and is engaged in exposing fraudsters.

"You can fake any application, and it will fully match the display, visualization and data in the real application. The only thing where you can establish that it is fake - is to check the QR-code, it will not work. Accordingly, these documents will be invalid," said cybersecurity expert Serhiy Denysenko.

As it was reported earlier, fraudsters have created a fake Diya application in Ukraine. They create fake Covid-certificates and passports using that program.
